News about the passing of Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti broke after midnight today.
The Globe and Mail did well to hustle the following onto page A17 of its Toronto edition:
The left-most column of page A17 was the A book's In Brief section. Unfortunately, it contained the following as the second item from the top, putting it adjacent to the main Pavarotti story:
Rome — Luciano Pavarotti's health has deteriorated and the tenor was in serious condition, suffering kidney problems and losing consciousness, a local Italian TV station reported yesterday.
The AGI news agency said the 71-year-old tenor, who has pancreatic cancer, was in “very serious condition.” It didn't name its sources.
At least one former BGMI colleague noticed the juxtaposition as well. However, I call it a “there but for the grace of God” moment.
